"The Dark Power of Fraternities"
Caitlin Flannagan's article at The Atlantic, "The Dark Power of Fraternities," is necessary reading for anyone connected with higher education--whether as a parent, a student, a teacher, an administrator, an alumnus, or any combination of these or other connections. The article should be of interest to MOJ readers for many reasons, including its discussion of the morally ambiguous roles of lawyers. It is not a "hit piece," but it does hit fraternities and universities hard, even while acknowledging that fraternities serve many good purposes.
